Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Stieg Larsson fans will find a lot to like in Burton's taut, well-paced novel of romantic suspense. Eva Rayburn returns home to Alexandria, Va., after serving 10 years in prison for a crime she's not sure she committed--the murder of Josiah Cross--after the terrible night when Josiah, the ex-boyfriend of one of Eva's college sorority sisters, terrorized Eva and the other residents of their sorority house, branding each with a four-pointed star. Now, the women who survived are starting to die at the hands of a serial killer, who first brands each victim with a four-pointed star. Eva joins forces with Deacon Garrison, an Alexandria city homicide detective, to find the revenge killer. Despite their initial distrust, Deacon and Eva end up unable to fight the spark between them. Burton (Dead Ringer) surrounds her appealing protagonist with a strong supporting cast, including a largehearted bar owner, a ruthless crime reporter, and a self-preserving socialite. (Jan.) (c)

By J. Shetrone VINE VOICE on January 2, 2011
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was pleased with this. It's labeled as a romantic suspense, but the romance happens fairly late in the book. That being said, I think it made it more believable, because we get the time to know Eva and Garrison and root for them to get together. Burton gives us a plot that's thorough without being overly complicated. She's also able to make us wonder about the true motives of almost every character, even those that should be solidly on the good side of things. I actually was unable to guess the true culprit, and that's a rarity for me. The only thing missing is a good sense of the setting. We know it's in Alexandria, since a great deal is made of it, but I can't say that I learned anything about Alexandria. It really could have happened anywhere. But overall, if you enjoy suspense this is a great read.

Eva Rayburn is in her late twenties (although she looks like she's 16). She's strong, incredibly smart, beautiful, tough, and an ex-con. Ten years earlier, while partying with her sorority sisters, Eva was raped and branded with a star-shaped pendant. A fire is set and she barely escaped with her life. Unfortunately (or depending on how you look at it, fortunately), her rapist, Josiah, dies in the fire, and Eva is convicted of killing him. She is fairly certain she did not kill Josiah, but she can't remember much about that night. Is she a cold-blooded murderer, or did she take the fall for someone else? The fact that her sorority sisters testified against her didn't help much either. Neither are the nightmares and bits and pieces of memories that keep coming back. But she is now trying to rebuild her life by, moving back to Alexandria where she was born and raised. She is working nights at a halfway house as an attendant, afternoons as a bartender, and in between as a process server. While she has grown close to King, (the bar owner who has a secret of his own), and his foster son, Bobby, (who has his own issues, as well), she still hasn't let her sister Angela know that she has been back in town for six months. A sister that she pushed away during her trial in order to protect her from Josiah's father, hell bent on making the person who took away his son suffer.

Now someone is killing Eva's former sorority sisters. Each time a body is found, it has the same star-shape branded into them. The killer leaves the body of the first girl at the halfway house where Eva works, torching the place to boot. Detectives Deacon Garrison and Malcolm Kier are assigned to the case.

This book hooked me right off the start. Eva is an ex-con that can't remember if she murdered Josiah...the book keeps you wondering who is behind the recent killings of her old friends and why they are branded with a star. Detective Garrison is trying to find out what happend 10 years ago and how it plays in the murders now.
Can' wait for Merciless..the story of Eva's sister Angie.

It's been 10-years since Eva Rayburn was convicted of a murder she can't remember. Newly released from prison she's leery of cops and trying to stay on the straight and narrow. But someone has not forgotten or forgiven the crime and thinks she and others still need to be punished. Deacon Garrison is a homicide detective investigating a murder that appears to be linked to Eva. Can Garrison untangle the mystery of the past while keeping Eva safe or will she become a psychopath's final victim?

This was another great book by the very talented Ms. Burton. It's the first in a series of two (Senseless & Merciless) so I'd recommend reading them in order. I adored Eva and Garrison, neither of whom let the traumas from their past drag them down. It was full of surprises and had an ending I never saw coming. My only criticism would be that the romance didn't take root until the end and while I loved what I saw, I wish there had been more. Great read overall though & one I'd easily recommend!

As Eva tries to rebuild her life after her release from prison for a murder she does not remember committing, she becomes the focus of both a serial killer and a cop. All Eva remembers from the night that that ruined her life was her brutal rape. However her sorority sisters all claim that she in fact murdered the the brutal son of a rich and powerful family. Now, someone is torturing, maiming and murdering the sorority sisters. All paths lead to Eva. As Eva and the lead detective fight their growing attraction, Eva learns the ugly truth about the night while unmasking the murderer.

I think the author got the proprotions right. Some people like a little coffee with their sugar, others a little sugar with their coffee. I fall into the latter category and prefer just a touch of romance with my suspense. I appreciated the fact that Eva and Garrison did not jump right into bed. Since Eva was a rape victim and had trust and abandonment issues, it would be hard to fathom her becoming intimately involved with anyone. Although the book seemed disjonted with many seemingly unconnected characters, it all came together in the end.

That is not to say there were no issues. The ultimate motive was unclear and I suppose, hence, the title. I wish authors would make heroines less perfect. Eva is not only beautiful and a genius, she is hard-working, and kind. A vicim of both a brutal rape and a laughable conviction, she is scarily well adjusted. It seems with a hotshot lawyer sister, she should have been able to get the conviction reversed, not just the sentence (which she already served) commutted. There were too many characters and side stories that added little. But, overall the story held my interest and was entertaining.
